Meaningless. Zero impact on her.

Plenty of news outlets are explaining the max consequences of this state investigation, which would amount to reprimands for her staff but no legal consequences at all. The worst it could do to her is keep her from hiring some of the people who are coming under scrutiny.

If this investigation were important, they wouldn't have stopped it and put it on the back burner while the FBI ran its investigation. It played second fiddle for a good reason, it's meaningless.

Thanks, that explanation makes sense.

RE: US State Department restarts Hillary Clinton email probe
I'm wondering if Trey Gowdy is going to work on a perjury charge for Hillary. She was under oath during the Benghazi hearings and she stated multiple times under oath that she didn't send or receive classified information from her private email. He really worked that angle in the hearing this morning with the FBI director, laying it out fact by fact that the truth was the opposite of what she had testified to.

WillHopp covered my response on why it's meaningless.

As for Gowdy, he can't work on a perjury charge. Congress can't prosecute. They just don't have that power. But, they can add it to the Articles of Impeachment I think they plan to hit her with on January 21.

Just remember that's not a criminal proceeding.

Everyone needs to pay careful attention to her VP pick because that decision could end up being relevant.

Perjury, in this instance, will be almost impossible to prove.

RE: US State Department restarts Hillary Clinton email probe
Perjury is always difficult to prove. But, given the distance between what she said under oath and the actual reality, I'd say a prosecutor could make a case if one was willing.
